Happy Easter

Hi everyone, Sorry, I've been a bad blogger again. Seems like days go by and I don't even realize how long it's been since I last posted.

It's Saturday night and just started snowing here, we are supposed to get about an inch by morning, but tomorrow is supposed to be warm and Sunny. We will see, as I've said before the weather here is crazy this time of year.

I was looking thru the pictures on my computer and came across this one. These are two of my dogs. The little one is Arlo, a Chihuahau-Rat Terrier mix and the other one Penny, we think is Beagle and Wiener Dog but we are not sure, she is one heck of a mouser though. She caught 4 this last week alone! The little dog says he helped, but I don't know. Anyway, they looked so cute here I just had to share.

And this is Sargent our Welsh Corgi, his name fits him very well, he always wants to be in charge.

And here is my latest creation, I am really into crowns right now for some reason. This was my first one. I have a few others in the works also.

And here is the craft night project from a few weeks ago. These were really fun to make and are for sale on my Etsy. I didn't get last weeks project done but will post as soon as it's ready. we have craft night in the basement of my dear friend Kim's store. She has an awesome country gift and decor shop called My Favorite Things. I am going to take pictures and showcase it on my blog soon. I can't wait to show it to everyone. It will be so much fun.

Hope you all have a great weekend,
Toodles for now,

Signs of Spring

The first little signs of Spring are popping up here at my work place. The daffodils and hyacinths are peeking out of the ground and will soon be blooming

I still have the wrong date on my camera

Even the cats are happy it's almost Spring
Ahhhh, that feels good
What are you looking at. (She gets a little grouchy sometimes.)

Woo Hoo, It's almost here. Of course we are supposed to get more snow tonight and tomorrow. After all it is March, our snowiest Month here in Colorado. In March 5 years ago we had 3 feet of snow in 24 hours. This really isn't normal, but it could happen again. They always say in Colorado if you don't like the weather just wait half an hour.

Wednesday Craft Night

Well craft night last Wednesday went pretty well. It was our second get together of our weekly craft-a-thon. We decided to make decorative cones for Easter. However, we were late getting started and weren't able to completely finish our projects. I also didn't do a very good job of photographing what we were doing, but I managed to get a few pictures.

First we painted our cardboard cones light pink, then waited for them to dry, and waited.........and waited........and waited.........

When they were finally dry we applied a vintage Easter Graphic to the cone.

Then we brushed watered down elmer's glue and sprinkled with pretty crystal glitter. Then we waited for them to dry. and waited..............and waited............and waited..........

And by this time is was getting late and we were getting tired. So we decided to finish our projects at home. Here is how mine turned out.

I put some sparkled trim around the lip and bottom and tied some green vintage seam binding to make the hanger. Then filled with pink paper filler. Now it just needs some candy in it.

Hmmm, my camera has the wrong date on it for some reason, just noticed that.

So there it is. The big project. Hope you enjoyed my first little crafting journey. I will work on improving the quality of post and pictures.

Until next time,
Happy Crafting
